No.
That is all.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

I want a new rock album. More guitars, more orchestra, more live instruments.

Define "rock", because they've never brandished a guitar quite like U2 or Guns n Roses

Release tour aimed for something more live. It was a nice change. Tracks still very PSB, though.

And Jonny Marr proved a bit of rock enhances the disco angst anyway.

With Price at the helm they could sound like The Killers - "The last to die" showed that.
"It was a dark and stormy night."
"You know what's wrong with your stories? They lack subtlety."
"It was a sort of dark and kind of stormy night."

No thanks. Enough noisy guitar drivel about, usually touted as the next big thing
Live synth pop tracks you might have forgotten about.

If it was like "integral" where they married the guitars and electronics properly, sure. I posted a link to a swedish rock groups cover of "its a sin" some days ago. the interesting thing being, even though their genre is rock, the singers voice actually is kind of like neils in that its high,double tracked and sweet sounding so I love the contrast of these heavy guitars with his beautiful voice floating on top as opposed to the normal which is either a screaming singer or raspy voice.

if your interested give them a listen to "cirice"

Well, I like "All or Nothing" very much and it's pure electric rock and roll:

The most rock sounding song they've ever done has to be the Truck Driver and his mate. the crunch guitar part really rocks.
it rocks far more than anything on the so called rock album release.

I've thought their remixes of rock songs were pretty good. I think working with a metal band would be great, with the penchant toward hyperbole without being "camp." I think that's sort of what Streets was supposed to sound like, though we could debate whether ZZTop influences are properly "metal."
